    Would poly bofy mounts be agood idea on a 90 suburban. At first thought i would thing that the frame would stil try and flex just as much and drap the body around more, thus doing damage to the body? am i crazy? Also on my 78 that i did the caddy 500 swap in i used ORD's 2" round poly bushings for the mounts. Shoud i also do the tranny mounts poly or is it ok to leave the rubber ones back there? Thanks!

    I've still got rubber engine and tranny mounts, but I gather that mixing poly and rubber on the drivetrain will cause heartache, i.e. broken rubber mounts.

    Wow, that sounds like a bad porn movie.

    Anyway, general rule as I understand is don't mix; if you're gonna do poly engine mounts, do poly tranny and t-case if so equipped.

    I changed all of my mounts on my 90 Blazer and all went well. You do feel the "road" a little more but no big deal.

    Good Luck
